206 Bones?

We count on our body every day! Bones are holding our skin together. Our muscles help us to move and our nerves will tell us what hurts. There are 206 bones in our body!
  • 54 bones in our hands and wrists
  • 52 bones in our feet and ankles
  • 106 bones in hands and feet make the majority of the bones in our entire body
We have 606 muscles in our body, and we use 200 muscles to take a simple step! It doesn't matter whether it's a giant step or a baby step. Our muscles make up about one-half of the body weight. The essential part of our muscles is our heart!
